The Manic Street Preachers have revealed full details of the remix album for their top new album Journal For Plague Lovers.

Speaking to the Quietus recently Nicky Wire said the remixes were "amazing", and gave some details. "Andrew Weatherall has done an amazing version of 'Peeled Apples' which he described as being like Charlie Watts playing with PiL," he enthused. "The Horrors have done a remix of 'Doors Closing Slowly' which is even doomier, British Sea Power have done 'Me And Stephen Hawking' which is a Joe Meek kind of thing. Four Tet have really used and abused Albini's sounds."

The full Journal For Plague Lovers remix album tracklist:

Andrew Weatherall: 'Peeled Apples'

Saint Etienne: 'Jackie Collins Existential Question Time'

British Sea Power: 'Me And Stephen Hawking'

Patrick Wolf: 'This Joke Sport Severed'

A handful of tiny gold squares. A combs worth of split ends. A trail of spittle from the television to the supermarket. I remember when the Manic Street Preachers were fun. But no one will ever believe me because it was all so long ago.

"Their top new album" - did you let the intern write this, Quietus?


Please don't grace this cynical barrel-scraping exercise with a review.

Can it not be late nineties Charlie Clouser remixes? They were great.
